Bobbi Brown Intensive Serum Foundation

Review: Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40

“This will change your skin inside and out” – Bobbi Brown When it’s said that the hybrid foundation Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 is the fusion of skincare and makeup that beautifies the skin from within, I believe it. I have first hand experience of the benefits of Cordyceps Mushroom. It is a traditional… Read more »

face mist

Review: Bobbi Brown Face Mist vs Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water

I never really understood face mists until recently. I tried the Caudalie Beauty Elixir a while back and wasn’t really impressed. I liked the cool minty feeling on the skin while some hated it and I didn’t mind the scent while some were completely put off by it. I read good things about the Melvita… Read more »


Updates and Random Thoughts

It’s been a while since I dumped my random thoughts on the blog. My daily life is quite a routine, where I’d take care of the little baby, and chauffeur the girls to and from school / classes. Then, at least 5 days a week, I’d try to get my workout in, whenever I have… Read more »

Spring Box

Last Hoorah for ChloeAsh’s 4th Birthday

So, this is the last and final installment of my giveaway rally. It’s been a ride, and it’s been fun choosing stuff for you guys. The last round were some summer essentials, so I thought this round, I’d go backwards and present to you a Spring Box. Here are the things included (and some samples… Read more »


Beauty Influencer’s Sunday Column Vol.6: Makeup / Skincare DOs and DON’Ts

This week, we will be talking about skincare and makeup dos / don’ts. The most important thing though, I must stress, is that we need to know our own skin and features. I enjoy experimenting with new skin care and makeup but that’s because my skin can tolerate it. If your skin is sensitive and… Read more »

Not A Review: Lancome Blush Subtil Perle de Corail

My “Not A Review” is a series of posts where I want to show you something without saying much. Mainly because the pictures do all the talking, and also sometimes, I just don’t know what to say. In this case, I just don’t know if this is still available, and I also don’t know how… Read more »

life plankton essence

Review: Biotherm Life Plankton Essence

Truth be told, I haven’t tried anything from Biotherm before. Every time I walk past the counter, I am usually distracted by other brands nearby. I have already kind of figured out what skin care works for me, and I am content to use whatever I have at the moment. Curiosity does get me though,… Read more »


Sunday Stash Shopping #46 with Bobbi Brown

My Summer Essentials

Summer. I’ve been seeing photos and reviews of summer collections here and there, so I thought, why don’t I tell you what my must haves are? Truthfully though, your summer is my all year long! I’m going to keep this short, because you know, there’s a surprise in here somewhere… and I didn’t want to… Read more »

rouge Dior baume

Review: Rouge Dior Baume 760 Garden Party

I’ve been quite the hermit. I didn’t leave the house much since late October last year… and only recently did I feel comfortable enough to leave the house to go shopping with the baby. Of course I’d go out once in a while, but no more than once a week. I mean, I’m used to… Read more »

    Let’s Get Naked Again: Urban Decay Naked2 Palette

    If you’re familiar with your makeup, then, you will know Urban Decay Naked palette. Some love it, some hate it. Well, so far, I’ve only read good reviews about it, and I personally love it. Less than a month ago, Urban Decay came out with a Naked2. It is not available in Malaysia yet, but… Read more »

  • Lunasol pressed powder

    Touching up with Lunasol Pressed Face Colour

    If you apply makeup before work, you will know that by lunch time, most of whatever you have applied so carefully in the morning would not look as fresh anymore. In fact, some of us might experience something called makeup melt down. In a country that is hot and humid all year round, it is never a… Read more »

  • Christmas 2011

    Merry Christmas!

    Hi everyone! I’m just taking this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Whether you celebrate it or not, I hope you are still enjoying this time with your friends and family. My family and I don’t celebrate Christmas, but we’ve been having a blast!

    Dior Spring 2012 Swatches: 3 Couleurs Smoky Eyes Palettes

    Dior’s Spring 2012 Collection has 2 smoky eyes palettes, one Smoky Garden 461 (teal/green), the other Smoky Violet 961 (purple).

  • Lancome Blush Subtil

    The blush I won! Lancome Blush Subtil Rose Corail

    I entered one of Lancome’s Facebook contest a few months ago, and was one of the five picked to receive this lovely blush. I received this a little while ago, but never got round to posting it. So, before I procrastinate further, I’d better show you what it looks like!

  • Dior Spring 2012 Clutch

    Garden Party in your makeup? Dior tempts again

    Too many postings from a brand can be an overkill, but in this case, I really don’t care. I absolutely love this Dior Spring 2012 collection! The design is intricate and feminine, and very very captivating. I don’t know how to bring myself to swatch these for you, let alone applying it, but soon…soon enough…… Read more »

  • Lunasol Blushes

    Sheer and sophisticated: Lunasol blushes

    Have I reviewed anything from Lunasol before? I think this is my first. I have a few others in my stash but haven’t gotten round to posting them up. Their lippies are hydrating and the finishing powder very smooth and never cakey. Here today however, I have something for your cheeks. No, not that cheek,… Read more »

    Tip: Lips that Last!

    This is going to be my last instalment of my Dior Ipoh re-launch cover. If you’re interested in seeing how to do this look, you can refer to the makeover post here. Zaidi, Dior makeup artist, shared a tip on how to make lipsticks last. I tried it at home and it works!

  • Origins Mask

    Keeping oilies and bumpies at bay with Origins Out Of Trouble Mask

    One of the benefits of having normal/oily combination skin is, you won’t get lines as early as those with dry skin. One bummer is, you are no stranger to oily T-zone, enlarged pores and the dreaded bumps! I have my good phases. Then, there will be a phase where my skin goes all haywire. I… Read more »
